When you have a growing and innovative sport like freebording, gather up all the best riders in the sport and take them on a trip, epic times are to be had.

Traveling south through L.A and finding a great hill with fresh wet slurry on it was fustrating. It was time for the team to head farther south to Orange County.

After finding some of the best hills in Southern California it was not long before the cops came to tell us to leave. They told us about a ban on hills in the city and gave us a pamphlet showing all the banned hills.

Thinking we had won after finding a hill that wasn’t on the list the Dethbox (Freebord van) crashed into a parked Mustang.

It was time to move on to other hills. Heading down south to a popular road in San Clemente everyone got some shredding in without being hassled.

The trip wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the skate park. The shreddage and elbow/hip/ass carnage was exhilerating to watch.

After another day of shredding the team was headed back up north.

Epic hills, cops, car crash, more cops, shredding, getting yelled at by the locals, camping, more shredding, road rash, swell bows, skate parks, and more shredding. Wouldn’t be a Freebord trip without all of this.

“Jamboree”, a local parking garage favorite for many OC based skaters has always been a top choice when inclement weather was around or if we’re just looking for a fun session down ramps with an elevator access back to the top.

Last Thursday¬† (10/14/10) evening the crew met for another fun night of railing “Jamboree’s” right-hand corners. There was about 15¬† of us. Some of these kids traveled all the way from San Juan Capistrano and Laguna Beach just for this garage session so a few runs were definitely in order, but after about 10 runs, the security smelled us and decided to go for a chase.

We saw his car racing up to the top level to meet us. Everyone started pushing to get away, but he soon caught up. He snuck in between pillars to keep up with us and drifting the corners in his Prius. I watched as he recklessly tried to run some of use into the wall.

When we reached the ground level split-up through different exits, six of usjumped into an SUV to try and get away from the enraged security officer. He then proceeded to speed into where we parked to exchange some words. “It’s going to be a scary thing when your generation takes over,” the security guard said.

One week later Thursday 10/21/10 everyone joined back up for round two with the security guard. This time he was with superior back up, the Irvine Police Department.
